Our Story

“How will our lives make an impact?”

That’s the question that came up in a living room in South Riding not so long ago.  What could Pleasant Valley UMC do differently in order to meet the needs of the people in our community?

After a lot of prayer and reflection, Impact Worship was born.  Since then, the work of some dedicated volunteers has allowed us to make what was once a dream into a reality.   Impact Worship is a church community that is intentional about serving our neighbors, whether it is through being a safe space for getting to know God and each other better, or through our regular service projects that are part of worship.

We believe that through God, we are able to #maketheimpact in our world that is so badly needed.  We can be an example of just how much our lives can be transformed when we understand the way God’s love impacts us, and how that love then drives us to be the hands and feet for those in need.

If our story clicks with you, then we’d love for you to be a part of our community as well.  Attend a worship service, check out an event, or get connected to a small group.
